by Brianna Crandall — August 23, 2021 — Anti-slip product manufacturer Wooster Products recently introduced Heavy Duty 20, an anti-slip coating designed to provide high traction and durability for industrial areas including factories and manufacturing environments, as well as industrial and commercial settings such as auto service stations, retail facilities like ski resorts, and more.
A member of the Walk-A-Sured Water Clear Epoxy System, this eco-friendly, two-component epoxy system meets OSHA and ADA standards, and ASTM slip-resistance requirements, points out Wooster Products. It contains 100% solids, with no solvents or volatile organic compounds (VOCs), ensuring compatibility with previously installed coatings.
Water-, solvent- and chemical-resistant Walk-A-Sured Water Clear Heavy Duty 20 contains polymer grit, which gives the coating long-lasting added traction. It can be ideal for use on industrial floors by machining centers and other oil-prone areas, in auto service stations where oil and grease are common, in ski resorts where floors are normally wet, and in other manufacturing / industrial / commercial environments.
Available in 1-gallon kits that cover 150-225 square feet, Heavy Duty 20 is designed to be easily applied with a ¼” nap lint-free epoxy roller. This proven system cures completely in just 6-8 hours at ambient temperature (77 degrees F, or 25 degrees C), says the company. Compatible surfaces include concrete, metal, wood, glass, ceramic tile, terrazzo, marble, stone and previously installed coatings.
In addition to Heavy Duty 20, two other Walk-A-Sured Water Clear formulations are available for general purpose and specific applications including pool decks, waterparks, showers, spas, marinas, and indoor/outdoor surfaces. Walk-a-Sured Water Clear Heavy Duty 20 is available from coatings distributors and pool supply professionals nationwide. Dealer territories are available.
Manufacturing anti-slip products for new construction, renovation and OEM applications since 1921, the Wooster, Ohio-based company’s products include cast aluminum (Alumogrit), cast iron (Ferrogrit), extruded aluminum (Spectra, Supergrit, Stairmaster, and Flexmaster), pressure-sensitive adhesive tape/deck covering (Flex-Tred), and coatings (WP-70, Walk-A-Sured, and Safe-Stride).
